Serbian Finance Minister Mladjan Dinkic said the government may collapse .

Dinkic said he hoped the delay of talks will not endanger the planned sale of a 25 percent stake in the nation's oil and gas monopoly.
The government's advisers Merrill Lynch & Co. are due to complete proposals on the asset sale by the end of May and a tender may be started in ``early autumn,''
.
Separately, Dinkic said Serbia plans to repay its $960 million debt to the International Monetary Fund, as the central bank's foreign currency reserves have swelled to $8 billion and the country would make savings on debt servicing.
The government plans to borrow just to finance projects to improve ``infrastructure'' such as roads and would sell international bonds ``just to set a benchmark.''
The $2 billion in foreign direct investment inflows this year, is a ``minimum,'' Dinkic said, and will be raised through the sale of two banks and the country's biggest mobile phone company.

Pity they are selling 25% in the oil and gas as it would make it easier to honour bonds. International bonds is better than borrowing from the IMF.

They should copy Guernsey Island which has for over a hundred years created its own internal credit ( money) making development of infrastructure for eg a lot cheaper than borrowing figures on paper from international banks. Guernsey has both its own money and the English banks operating on the island.

The unfreezing of serbia money and reparations are probably tied up to a Milosovic confession Woj.

Montenegro's Separatists Win by Niebojsa Malic
After seven years of attempts, the separatist regime in Montenegro celebrated victory Sunday night, as it managed to drum up 55.5 percent of the votes necessary to win the independence referendum.
The outcome caused of joy at the International Crisis Group, among the Kosovo Albanians, to celebrate the "demise of Greater Serbia.
Democracy in Action
It has been said that it doesn't matter who votes as much as who counts the votes. In Montenegro this weekend, what mattered was who counted the voters. In the run-up to the referendum, tens of thousands of "Montenegrins" living abroad were registered to vote, while hundreds of thousands who lived in Serbia were denied that right.
None of the 350,000-plus Montenegrins living in Serbia were allowed to vote.
Alexis de Tocqueville once warned that a democracy could easily become a mere
New York's Newsday told his readers how Sunday night's referendum was a defeat for "every Serb who ever yearned to expand Serbia's territory" and "a dream of a land called Greater Serbia"
The hope of the United States, the European Union, and the international community at large is that Serbia will accept its modest new status as a landlocked country of under 10 million people, give up its expansionist, nationalist impulses, and embrace the West."
This sort of rhetoric is parroted by The Guardian's loss of Kosovo follow, "may be just the tonic Serbia needs to divest itself of a disastrous 15 years and a nationalism that has brought nothing but grief." Secession "marked the end of Serbia's 'imperial ambitions.'" She has supported the NATO bombing and advocated the occupation and forced "reeducation" of Serbia.
Serbia "imperialist" and "aggressive"
and for"liberal and democratic class," - "Never small enough."
Albanian separatists in the occupied province of Kosovo have cheered Sunday's results the loudest.
"Before the end of the year, Kosovo, too, will join Montenegro as a new state, and these new countries will be an important factor for stability of the whole region," Agim Ceku.
If 650,000 residents of Montenegro have the right to independence, why wouldn't the 2 million Albanians in Kosovo? One could respond that Montenegro was a "republic" in the old Yugoslavia, and that according to the EU's own ruling from 1991 only "republics" had the right to self-determination and secession, not provinces or peoples. That was certainly the argument used against the separatist movements of Serbs in Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. But the Abramowitz Doctrine clearly rejects the application of principles to the Balkans. Arguments rejected out of hand when they came from 2 million Serbs are now widely recognized as valid when coming from 2 million Albanians
To many in Serbia, Montenegro's separation comes as a relief, after almost nine years of provocations. Abolition of the Union will give

Bader- Washington won not India. The US can now do to India what they did to Nth Korea, dangle them on string but they will more likely feed them enough to prevent them from turning to an alternative. They wont want India joining with Russia and China and Iran obstruction to the uni-polar world.

Bader- There are a few things here Woj that make 'progress' difficult and may demand a war to bring things into a new line. As for the US, its a case of the 'borrower is servant to the lenders', its their privilege to host the dominant money in the world, which is why they front/head the uni-polar world, but it has a price and there is more to come.

One never need an argument against the use of violence, one need an argument for it.
Violence as a way of gaining power...is being camouflaged under the guise of tradition, national honor [and] national security...

Belarus, its leaders subject to a visa ban in the West, is to bar flights over its territory by U.S. and Canadian aircraft, the Foreign Ministry . Ban was in response to a refusal by both countries to allow an aircraft carrying Belarus's prime minister to refuel last month on its way to and from Cuba.

The former US general Clark who commanded

NATO's 1999 air war against Serbia predicted its southern province of

Kosovo would become independent within months. "I am confident that this issue will be solved very soon, and probably in few months, Kosovo will become independent and will respect the rights of all citizens," said Clark.
"I believe that Kosovo will be welcomed into the family of the nations and that there will be many opportunities for the citizens of this country to prosper, raise big families and make their dreams come true."
Clark, who is on a three-day visit to the disputed province, met Kosovo's President Fatmir Sejdiu and Prime Minister Agim Ceku, who said Clark was a great friend of Kosovo"He is and will always be honored by the people of Kosovo," he said.
Clark commanded the 1999 NATO air strikes that drove Serbian forces loyal to former Yugoslav leader
Slobodan Milosevic out of Kosovo. http://news.yahoo.co...to_060525162525

So Niebojsa Malic said the truth.

How childish, hypercritical. Will only strengthen Belarus people to be anti-US, ( and anti-Soro! that will set back civilisation a thousand years)

Jeneral Clark: how hypercritical, and how about the states in the US, if they wanted to become independant?????
The UE isnt empire building but Milosvic was! Mind you Woj, just think where the world would be right now if the clash between Bosnian muslims and Christian Serbs hadnt of been caused to end. It might have caused the muslim world to become anti-west to the extent that efforts by the US to bring democracy there to be not appreciated!

)Funny story -- Iraq supports Iran's right to use nuclear technology for peaceful means and wants a diplomatic solution to the standoff between Iran and the U.S. over uranium enrichment,
``In our view the Islamic Republic has the right to have nuclear technology as long as it is for peaceful means,''
U.S. Bush and U.K. Blair, supporters of the new Iraqi government, are at the forefront of western criticism of Iran's nuclear program.
Mottaki expressed concern over Iran's security because of the presence of U.S.-led troops in Iraq, where some 130,000 American troops are deployed as part of a coalition that numbers about 150,000.
. Mottaki's visit is the first between the two countries since the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
Mottaki said Iran is keen to see the new Iraqi government of succeed.

How to explain America's incessant search for a new enemy?
The Cold War provided the Evil Empire. Create an international coalition to defend the "free world," enemies we were down to Kim Il-Sung of North Korea and Fidel Castro of Cuba. Saddam Hussein's Iraq was no better enemy.
Ironically, the occupation has created a far more formidable enemy.
Now Iran is getting the most attention.
But many conservatives are looking beyond to the China.
Even the Bushies understood that they were unlikely to bring Beijing into compliance.
Now, with the public turning against their disastrous Iraq adventure, neoconservatives are looking for new targets takeover by the China National Offshore Oil Corp. of UNOCAL. Fears are rising over Chinese activities in Latin America.
Jed Babbin and Edward Timperlake wrote Showdown: Why China Wants War with the United States,?
The Chinese threat to U.S. "interests" is primarily a threat to the American empire.
. The basic issue is Washington's predominance in East Asia.
Why should Washington be surprised if in the next two decades it lost its ability to deploy predominant military power in every region on earth?
Most important, treating China as hostile is more likely to turn it hostile.
America's objective should be a world without enemies.
Even if that isn't achievable, Washington should not work to create them. D.Bandow

Well put Woj.

A new enemy is a means to a new defence of 'order' but the order is changing as well and we arent supposed to notice that.
Its the same dynamic that the 'jewish' elite used against the rank and file- the gheto- circled wagon- mentality.
Notice how the Soviet Union for a couple of generations and then disappearing has enabled a more benign form of it to succeed in Europe.
By the time the US has run its course the NWO will be gone and replaced by a greater order appearing more benign. Bare in mind the damage the white house is doing to its own country is critical otherwise the people wont accept the replacement and submit to foreign over-ruling.
'good' things take time.

China and the US are on a collision course and China is being built up from without just as the third reich was and the soviet union.

But the linch-pin is Russia which makes her number one. The outcome will be decided by her. Therefore I expect that the world focus will be on who and what replaces Mr Putin when he stands down (in 2008 isnt it?). It might be a case of watching to see if the power base moves out of St Petersburg or not, like the faithful waiting and watching for a smoke pile to arise from the chimney of the Cardinals conclave to select a new Pope.

Neither China or Russia will let the NWO invade Iran as they have Iraq. That is why, I believe, it is stuck in 'negotiation' mode. The US/Zionist policy looks to be to create a consensus of nations against Iran and destablise Iran from within and create an obscure pretext to deal to her later as they did in Jugoslavia.
But bare this in mind, as China grows bigger her pretext to interfer in the Middle East on the basis of her need for oil which is the US one at present will be just as justified because the US has already set the precident- thus a 'clash' is inevitable. They didnt build that highway across the top of India for nothing. So a relationship between the US and India and nuclear power is strategic.
